Abstract

The aim is to describe a technique with orthograde dissection of the anterior tibial artery (ATA) used as the recipient vessel for the end-to-end (ETE) anastomosis in defect reconstruction around the knee and for proximal/middle third leg defects with free anterolateral thigh (ALT) and gracilis flaps.
